New group needed for Neil McDougall Community Garden

News Update 4 July 2023

The City is looking for enthusiastic gardeners to coordinate a community garden in Como.

Neil McDougall Community Garden is a prospering organic fruit and vegetable farm that was established by a group of passionate volunteers in 2012 who believed in creating a safe, healthy and enjoyable community enterprise.

The group has recently disbanded so an opportunity exists for a new group to undertake the community garden coordination into the future.

The City is inviting expressions of interest (EOI) from suitable applicants to undertake the coordination of the garden.

Applicants should be passionate about sustainable gardening and skill sharing, community capacity building, organic food production and/or promoting healthy living.

The garden is fully reticulated and comprises a number of raised garden beds, wooden fencing planted with herbs, pizza oven, water tank and two ancillary buildings for storage and activities.

The Expression of Interest period closes on 28 July 2023
